Steven M. Lear, ChFC, CLUPrincipal, Financial Planner, Affiance Financial
I’ve heard Christine speak and she is always informative and entertaining. In addition, I have had her visit with the leadership team of Affiance Financial and found her contributions to be extremely helpful. Christine helped us create a “Path to Partnership”. She was inquisitive, thoughtful, and innovative in helping us develop what we feel is a long-term strategy to motivate associates to want to become partners. We changed our business model—we’re now managing our firm so that we create a 25% profit to distribute to partners. We originally got this idea from Mark Tibergien, but Christine helped to define exactly what it would to take for someone to qualify as a partner and thus be eligible for a portion of that 25% profit margin.
